Medical Research 2 CAM427

Hobart, Launceston, Cradle Coast


Full time students enrol in CAM426, CAM427, CAM428 & CAM429. Part time students enrol in one unit per semester, beginning with CAM426. At the completion of CAM427 an IC (Interim Completion) grade is awarded. The final result is awarded on completion of CAM429.


This unit of study aims: (a) to provide training in research, in order to give students a competitive edge in their vocational career path; (b) to provide students with the opportunity to plan, execute, interpret and analyse purposeful experiments, appropriate to their research project, and to communicate their results; and (c) to investigate and communicate analysis and outcomes of contemporary biomedical research. Research projects in this unit include the very wide range of techniques required for modern biomedical and clinical research from the biochemical or molecular level, through cell biology, to whole animal and human studies. Students considering this unit are advised to discuss with prospective supervisors their research areas and possible projects in detail before deciding on a research group for the year. The Discipline will provide specific details on assessment procedures and criteria used.
